I began teaching Pottery in Adult Education in Bedfordshire, which included working in local day centers with adults with learning and physical disabilities and the elderly, which I found enjoyable and extremely rewarding. I am currently teaching adults Pottery, offering day, evening and weekend classes. I love my job I am so lucky to be able to do Pottery for work! It’s great to see people who come classes for the first time who usually haven’t touched clay since school days, get the pottery bug and return term after term expanding their knowledge and skills.
I teach all aspects of ceramics including: Throwing, handbuilding, glazing, mouldmaking, bodycasting, sculpture, raku 楽焼 (ancient Japaneses pottery traditionally used in Japanese tea ceremonies, most often in the form of chawan tea bowls.) and Smoke firing.

Smoke firing session
I work from my studio at home surrounded by wonderful countryside and much wildlife set in the beautiful village of Wrestlingworth in Bedfordshire. I was always inspired by the human form and created abstract sculptural pieces which evoked energy and sensuality. Recently more simplified forms are evolving as I am creating the energy and movement produced from smoke firing in my burnished work. Although I have used terra sigillata I prefer to use the simple stone or spoon to burnish as I find it very therapeutic and instills some peace in my busy life.
